Our prediction for this League 2 match:
All eyes will be on Prenton Park when Tranmere and Bristol Rovers face each other in the League Two derby. The Super Whites occupy 7th place in the standings, with all Newport, Swindon, Salford, and Sutton breathing down their neck. Tranmere are desperate to put an end to their three-game winless run, and we are positive they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash.
Fit-again midfielder Jay Spearing is pushing for a start, while both Kieron Morris and Calum MacDonald are sidelined through suspension. The Pirates, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Bradford City, and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Bristol Rovers boss Joey Barton should have a full squad to choose from. You should know that the two sides played out a 2-2 draw in the first half of the season.
Highlighted Player (Liam Feeney ):
Liam Feeney is an English footballer who plays for Tranmere Rovers as a midfielder. Born in Hammersmith, England on January 21, 1987, Feeney started his senior career at Hayes, and after scoring eight goals in 46 appearances for the club, he moved to Salisbury City in 2007.
The experienced footballer for several other English clubs as well, and, no doubt, Blackburn Rovers, Bournemouth, and Bolton Wanderers are the most notable ones. Nowadays Liam Feeney plays for Tranmere Rovers in the League two on loan from Blackpool. His main position is right wing, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left winger as well.
Feeney made his League Two debut with Tranmere in a 3-0 loss to Cheltenham Town on September 19, 2020. His preferred foot is right, and he has a contract with the Whites until May 2021. The experienced winger has a dual citizenship (England/Jamaica).
Highlighted Team (Bristol Rovers):
Established back on August 1, 1883, Bristol Rovers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. Bristol Rovers were formed after a meeting at the Eastville Restaurant under the name of Black Arabs after the Arabs rugby team.
This name, though, lasted no more than one season as the club was renamed Eastville Rovers in 1884. Five years later the club’s name was officially changes to Bristol Rovers. Nicknamed the Pirates, Bristol Rovers welcome their opponents at Memorial Stadium Horfield, the venue with the capacity of 12,296. Bristol Rovers are well known for their blue and white home kit, but they are dressed in yellow when playing on the travels.
Ricky Lambert, who used to play for the likes of Southampton and Liverpool in the Premier League, is regarded as one of the club’s most notable footballers. It has to be noted that Lambert scored 51 goals in 128 appearances for the Pirates in the league.
